Himesh Reshammiya is on a roll this year, with his BOL BACHCHAN being a success, songs of OMG OH MY GOD! turning popular, SON OF SARDAAR rising in the charts and a television stint which is paying good dividends, Himesh has been delivering well as a composer just like the old times. Meanwhile with KHILADI 786 round the corner, which he has not just co-produced but also given music for and acted in, the man is definitely busier than ever before.

“‘Balma’ is out and it is apparent that the 70s retro musical feel has been brought back again into scheme of things,” comments an observer, “While this composition is pretty much dedicated to R.D. Burman (and that has been made clearly visible instead of being camouflaged), it would be interesting to see what rest of the album has to offer.”
While the song has a Shammi Kapoor touch to it, what has also fetched ‘Balma’ some good attention is the presence of Claudia Ciesla who is being seen in her first mainstream Bollywood film.

“However the song still belongs to Akshay mainly since ‘Khiladi’ is his franchise. This is the reason why you see inter-cuts of so many of his action sequences in the song’s video. So while Claudia and Asin (who also feature in the song) do heat up affairs, added ‘dum’ comes in due to Akshay’s presence”, says a source attached to the film.
Though this is the story of just a solitary song, one looks forward to how the entire album sounds like once it releases all over this month.
